How many times have we heard loose/pub talk where people announce they'd like to do do serious harm to someone they feel has wronged them? How many times has this sort of loose talk been taken as a real 'threat,' been reported to the Police and taken seriously by them, resulting in a lot of costly man hours/time/changes in legislation dedicated to it? How many of these 'threats' have ever been actually carried out? How many times over the past 100 years in Sark has there been a serious GBH or murder? ...wow, that castle really does have a lot of people in high places under it's spell, doesn't it? SO glad that Guernsey's rolling in cash and we can afford all this very necessary Police work...!
